Charlottetown Police Service is pleased to announce that in cooperation with the New Comers Society, a foreign language translator list. A very dedicated group of people provided by the New Comers Society have offered their service to the Charlottetown Police to assist officers by phone in situations were language is a barrier to providing assistance. Police are able to access the translator in time of need 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A translator list was compiled with security screening and background checks completed on all individuals involved in the service. At present, Charlottetown Police have the capability to provide language translation in Somali, Mandarin, and Arabic. Arabic translation can be provided by both a male or female translator depending on the situation. Charlottetown Police are committed to offering the best police service possible to new residents of our city who find themselves in a vulnerable situation not yet knowing the English language. Once again Charlottetown Police would like to thank the individuals who have come forward to provide their time and expertise to assist other members of our city.
